Acer Z301C Predator 200Hz - Gsync

Post by Sworda » 29 Nov 2018, 16:33

Hello guys,

New to this forum, so i don't know if the information that i seek are already somewhere, sorry in advance if that's the case.


So, i just bought a new monitor : Acer Z301C Predator with Gsync

Cool & all, but when i try to enable the Gsync on the Nvidia Control Panel, it seems to flicker randomly on the desktop, when in certain windows, etc etc.

I have overcapped my Refresh rate to 200Hz, but i don't think it's needed ? (It's smoother)


Anyway, my questions are :

- Is it normal to get flickering with Gsync On ?
- Is there a benefit to have Gsync On ? (I bought a Gsync monitor specificaly to test it.. I would be sad if couldn't use it at all :roll: )
- If there conflicts to avoid while using Gsync ?
- Is there any feedback concerning that monitor ? (Acer Z301C Predator)


To anyone answering to this thread :Thank you !

Windowed mode g-sync is glitchy in recent Windows 10 versions. I recommend not enabling that option.

Also, you can read through this to learn more about how to best use g-sync:
